A short quick HELLO!
This is easy and painless this morning… but some good ones are to come later in the next few days!
**Yesterday Andrea did ZERO running or lifting ((I did get in my 100 pushups tho! ouch!)) But I just didn’t feel like running!!!
…another post on this later…hmm…
I have been on a roll with movies the last few weeks!!
The Heat, We’re The Millers, Elysium, and The Butler!
The Butler was amazing!! Oprah (who I am not a fan of.. don’t hate me…) did such an incredible job I bet she is nominated for an award. She completely transformed into the role.
Go see it… 🙂
The following links here are great sources for women runners and athletes looking for the right foods to fuel up with!
Take a look:
A lot of this we know, but it is still nice to read it and be reminded!
As the days wind down for me to return to my life as a grad student, I am both nervous and excited to really be tested in terms of meals and nutrition! I have made so much progress in the last few months after seeking help from my family, doctors, nutritionists, etc, and I am prepared to do everything I can to keep the momentum moving forward!
I live by myself at school (just moved into a sweet new place with an AWESOME kitchen!) and balanced meals have always been a problem for me. But I am going in with a positive attitude and some ideas to help me succeed!
I plan on making a weekly meal calender so I know each day/night what I am fixing/eating. I will prep on Sunday and I will stick to my plan. That way, even if I come home tired and just want to sink into a bag of pretzels or consider filling up on 7 apples and calling that dinner, I will look at what I had planned for dinner, and I will cook it!! Yes, I am determined to convince myself that if it is written on my fridge calender, than that might as well be set in stone ha.
**I would LOVE some help on what meal planning looks like, what people make, how to go about it, fast delicious healthy meals, etc.
So far I am thinking:
Salmon Casserole (dads version that is to die for)
Grilled chicken/sweet potato/steamed veggies (easy easy)
Fish Fish and Fish with broc or asparagus and brown rice
Good Ol’ Turkey Sandwich with ALL the fixings (still my favorite thing ever)
Ground Turkey Sloppy Joe’s
Omelet’s and egg sandwiches
Anything else you guys think?? Need some help!!
